Hi everybody! My name is Ivan Kashubo and I'm the concept artist in video game industry.

Introduction

When you have some spare time, it's always nice to draw something for your own pleasure, something not connected with your work. I'm very fond of drawing different creatures and characters, evil and good ones. So, after reviewing some photos, references and pictures by other CG artists I decided to do a monster portrait. The idea was to picture a stretched face with distinctive eyes. I wanted to convey the depth of the character's personality in this painting. I'm a big fan of Dave Rapoza's art (schoolism.com). His tutorials are very inspiring.

Concept Art

First I drew a quick linear sketch (Fig.01). I drafted out the character's expression and proportions. I gave him a large forehead, stretched chin, long neck and high collar. Everything was done in a quick and schematic manner.

Then I added lighting to the sketch (Fig.02). At this stage I always think that grayscale drawing is preferable. It allows you to grasp the exact mood of a piece without being distracted by colors and tones. So everything was done very quickly: lights, shades, halftones.
